Pano AI Celebrates Successful Wildfire Detection Technology Pilot in the North Bay

Pano AI, the leader in wildfire early detection and intelligence, is excited to announce the successful completion of an initial pilot in the North Bay Area, which includes Lake County, Napa County, and Sonoma County. Through the pilots, Pano AI provided early access to Pano Rapid Detect, an easy-to-use platform that enables fire districts to quickly detect, assess, and pinpoint new fires earlier, so that they can be contained while still small.

Leveraging a network of connected, ultra-high-definition cameras continuously rotating atop high vantage points, Pano Rapid Detect captures a dynamic 360-degree panoramic view of the landscape every minute. This rich camera data, combined with satellite imagery, emergency call details, and other data feeds enables Pano AI’s artificial intelligence to monitor for threats and provide actionable intelligence in a single, intuitive interface.

“With wildfire response, every minute matters. We created Pano Rapid Detect to help first responders get to the scene faster and more safely—with the right equipment, up-to-date information, and enhanced coordination—so that they can stop a new ignition in its tracks,” said Sonia Kastner, founder, and CEO of Pano AI. “By supporting our partners in the North Bay, we hope that we can help protect lives, homes and businesses, and our irreplaceable Northern California forests.”

Wildfire season is starting sooner and ending later, as the impacts of climate change create the ideal conditions for fires to spread. In 2021, there were over 7,000 California wildfires, burning more than 2 million acres of land. Responding to these wildfires commands significant resources from fire departments across the state. Along with identifying actual fires, one of Pano AI’s advantages is the company’s ability to distinguish false positives, or non-fires, from real wildfires, preserving fire departments’ resources for legitimate fires via their 24/7 Pano Intelligence Center.

“Solutions like Pano AI lead a new generation of fire technologies. Advances in hardware, connectivity, and artificial intelligence will make it possible to detect fires faster than ever before, so we can alert the appropriate departments, streamline our response, and allocate important resources where they are most needed,” said retired Chief Jim Comisky, President of South Lake County Fire Protection District, a participant in the pilots. “While we can’t stop wildfires from happening, we can be more aware of their location and spread, and in doing so, continue to protect our communities.”
